Birmingham Rollers
This type of roller pigeon is probably the most well known in the world. As the name suggests, it was bred and developed in Birmingham, UK. Selective breeding ensured that these birds could perform quick somersaults in flight. Birmingham Rollers can be split into two different types: Flying and Show. The show rollers are bred purely for show purposes, and as such, are bigger in size than the flying ones that need to be smaller to perform better in the sky.

Parlor Rollers
These are very similar to Birmingham Rollers, especially in their appearance. The main difference is that they cannot fly. Instead, they do backwards somersaults on the ground for metres at a time.

Oriental Rollers
This type of Roller pigeon are a different type of flying roller. They come in a number of different colours and are used to perform in shows such as the World Cup competition.

Breeding Rollers
Roller pigeons are bred all over the world. In fact there is estimated to be around 10,000 breeders of this type of bird. These breeders can be found in a wide variety of terrains, climates and settings, which means that it is a pursuit for just about anybody.
